yes..i saw it today..watching Obama, Romney & Hillary trying to say yesterday's riots in Egypt were "hurt feelings" and "we will not tolerate this"

09/11/12 12:51 pm

Yep. I watched someone download a song from a website without paying for it. Since stealing music that way is a Federal crime (copyright law) and a felony, then of course I witnessed a felony. I am amazed so few here say they haven't witnessed a felony. I bet they did.

If DUI is a felony, I've witnessed it.

09/10/12 5:56 pm

@ Movie2016, you have a very good point, I'll relax on the political stuff for a while lol

09/10/12 5:22 pm

Quite a few. I'm sure everyone has witnessed a felony and just didn't realize it.

In Illinois if you have ever seen more than an ounce of pot you should answer yes to this

obama2016, criminals may not be pussies. Look at it like a business, which approach carries more risk? A fair fight? What business or criminal would want that?
Competition largely rewards the consumer, who is in this case, the gun dealer.

Two words. Concealed carry!! Look at crime stats for Florida before and after. Makes a big difference. Most criminals are pussies and don't want a fair fight. Guns make them feel powerful and if it might be a fair fight they run and look for someone weaker.

@ Adog some people will turn any question into a political statement. Let it go for a while man! Relax, have some fun!
Yes, I was robbed at gunpoint years ago by some druggie!

Manufacture, sale, distribution, and possession with intent to distribute. It's hard to not witness those here.

09/09/12 10:05 pm

I'm sorry...that was uncalled for.

I apologize to all those who I may have...And boom goes the dynamite!

09/09/12 10:03 pm

I just committed my pants!

09/09/12 8:12 pm

state workers campaigning on the taxpayers dime = felony, so yes.

09/09/12 8:11 pm

Stabbed during a mugging...oh, and a person violating parole and a restraining order

EarlyBird, I don't think the question was if we ever had to testify. Is that what you meant by "valid"? I picture someone hiding in a closet during an assault. Hearing.

A senior in high school at one of our school dances beat the truancy officer to unconsciousness. Then he tried to choke his ex girlfriend. Thankfully, he was expelled from the school when they got him to the police station. That was last year, and he still hasn't graduated.

the neighbor's entire interior and couldn't understand why mom was so concerned. When I got older however, then I finally understood it. Not much I could understand at 4.

@Grocker oh yeah! I remember my mon being all shaken by that and a neighbors toilet not being so great… yeah. We didn't have a TV so we had to go over to a neighbor's to watch the TV. Watching planes crashing into buildings and debris laden smoke traveling didn't scare me at all. I just hated…

09/09/12 5:53 pm

Back in 2001, the morning news was reporting that a building was on fire in Manhattan. I was watching as an airplane flew into a second building. So yes, I've witnessed a felony, along with a few others that day.

FrankZappa - I didn't think "hearing" a crime was considered a valid witness.

09/09/12 4:27 pm

not even, vandalism counts as a felony if the damage is over a specified dollar amount. In my two cases, it was over $1,000 to repair, which made them felonies. Theft/larceny is usually a felony if above $1,000 as well.

FIAT, we only know if something is an epidemic if we track it. If the same people are committing the same crime repeatedly, the approach is different. I don't care if that WA officer is annoyed, that's his job. Tracking, studying, and taking the most effective action could prevent it.

at a local Denny's whenever someone walks out without paying for their $3 meal? And btw, that's a regular occurrence.

@FranZappa. Sorry… At least I've stopped short of posting some other boring stuff (10+ counts in the last 30 days). But did you ever hear about that Texas Police department charging their lunch thief with a misdemeanor for that? And the annoyance a King County, WA officer has with having to file…

Why sure I was working in a man hole splicing cable( telephone cable) and a man stuck a shot gun down at me and took my wallet,
He had a bandana over the bottom half of his.

You people are cute with your DNC and Obama admin. responses. The Bush admin. passed the Patriot Act which legitimately stripped U.S. citizens of their First and Fifth amendment rights. How about some hard facts to support your claim that Obama has committed felonious crimes??

I watched my father get arrested when he brought a gun to my school and threatened to kill the asshole who broke my heart and beat the absolute shit out of me multiple times.
